The Spin of Destiny is a case featured in Criminal Case: Pheadmouth. It is the eighth case in the city of Pheadmouth and the second one take place in the Italian Street district.


While the player and Ned patrolled around the city, they heard a scream from a nearby casino, where they then found the dead body of gambler Paolo Monti, dead on a casino table.

Mid-investigation, the team flagged professional gambler Grace O’Brien as a suspect, however, when being asked about her relationship with Tanner O’Brien, she denied and said that O’Brien was a popular last name in Pheadmouth. Shortly after, a blackout happened in the casino, prompting the team to check the electrical panel at the casino’s backyard. Later, they found Grace arguing with casino’s owner Vitto Santorini there. After gaining enough evidence, the team apprehended the victim’s wife, Violetta Monti, for the murder.

Admitting to the murder, Violetta explained that the victim had acted suspiciously recently, saying that he was like a womanizer and almost never came home. She then decided to visit the casino where her husband was working to invesigate. However, Violetta was then shocked after she caught him and Grace having an affair. Being frustrated, Violetta pretended not to know anything, she then called the victim to the casino, asking him to play a roulette spin with her. After the game was over, Violetta started to hit Paolo with a glass bottle. Judge Park sentenced her to 20 years in prison.

Post-trial, Ned and the player went to the casino to investigate the Santorini family. There, they found mobster Alberto Gigante’s phone, which (per Trent) contained a lot of text messages between Vitto and him. Talking about his connections with the Santorini family, Alberto refused to tell anything. Later, the team continued to investigate the casino’s backyard, where they found a flashlight covered by blood, which (per Camilla) was from security officer Carla Dolce. When being asked about the flashlight, Carla told the team that she hated Vitto and wanted him to go to prison. Therefore, she pretended to harm herself and blamed Vitto for it. The team then fined her.

Meanwhile, Rosamund wanted to talk to Christian and the player about her wanting to play poker once. The team then helped Rosamund to find some poker chips while she was trying to prepare everything for the poker game. After all the events, Christmas was coming to Pheadmouth and Chief Vinh told the team to take a day off and prepared to decorate the station for Christmas day.
